(Verse 1: Movement I)
You say you've got it comin'.
Well, I'm askin' you why.
You say because you gave me
The best years of your life.
Well, look me in the eye and tell me,
You call this livin'?
Where in the world was I,
When you were giving?

(Verse I: Movement II)
Oh, oh, I must 've been crazy
To love you the way that I do.
Oh-oh, Your love's gonna' slay me,
If I don't stay away from you.
Maybe I'll figure it out,
A little further down the road.
We'll write now and then,
But right now I've gotta' go.

(Chorus)
Can't Stay, And I Can't Go.
I promise you 'yes' and you tell me 'no.'
You say I will.
I swear that I won't.
I tell you I do.
You tell me you don't know.

(V 2: Movement I)
The highwayman, He said to me,
"This car is shot."
I said, "What'll you take to fix it?"
"Ah," he said, "How much have you got?"
I looked at the darkened sky.
You know it threatened to rain.
Hooked my thumb to hitchhike,
And I caught a ride with pain.

(V 2: Movement II)
Oh-oh, The road can kill ya',
If you don't know which way to go.
I must 've been crazy.
I took this dead end road.
Maybe I can figure it out,
A little further down the road.
It's all right now,
But then again,
Right now I've gotta' go.

Can't Stay, And I Can't Go.
I promise you 'yes' and you tell me 'no.'
You say I will. I swear that I won't.
I tell you I do.
You tell me you don't know,

(Tag)
What I'm talkin' about,
And you love me more than ever.
Oh-oh,, How could I ever doubt you?
I'm glad I never said never.
I think I just met you,
A little further down the road.
It's all right now,
But then again, Right now I've gotta' go.
